Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Abandoned homestead house in the sagebrush area around Hartline, Washington. Hartline is a small farming community close to the Grand Coulee Dam in eastern Washington. This portion was not suitable for farming and the family relocated. Rolling wheat fields are just over the ridge in the background.

The house, in its' sunset years was photographed at sunset.

    Cool shot. It's amazing that there are wheat fields just over the ridge, given the state of the land in this shot.

    That's a real fix-er-upper house : ). It is a beautiful capture, love the sunset tones.

    I think most of us "Easterners" and "Southerners" believe the hype about Washington State -- that it is lush and green and ripe with apples. When we visited the Grand Coulee Dam in '91, we were shocked at the high plains desert that characterizes so much of Eastern Washington. What a great shot. If only this old structure could talk.

    Eastern Washington looks SO much like fact I thought for a moment you had taken a photo of my house! (but we cut down the trees). I love old buildings like this one that the real estate people like to call a fixer upper!!
